Utah Football team still in “receiving votes” in both AP and Coaches Poll

NCAA Football: Weber State at Utah Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

The second polls of the season came out Tuesday, after a long college football weekend. The big movers up are LSU, after a big win over Miami, Virginia Tech, after topping Florida State and Stanford saw a pretty solid bump in both polls. The droppers are Miami, Michigan, Florida State and Texas. Why Texas was ranked is a giant mystery to so many people. USC saw a drop in the AP Poll, after a so-so showing against UNLV, but actually jumped a few spots in the Coaches Poll. Stanford didn’t plummet after their loss to Auburn, so they’re still sitting in a good spot. Stanford also saw a solid jump after a nice win over SDSU.

As for the Utes, they haven’t broken into the polls yet, as they are the first team out in the AP Poll, and the fourth team out in the Coaches Poll. I really don’t think the Coaches Poll is really worth anything, since it’s usually assistants and SIDs that do it for the coaches. Of course, these polls really don’t matter since the main poll, the College Football Playoff poll, comes out at the end of October.
